The Caravan Industry expresses profound relief as Treasury move preserves jobs
The NCC (National Caravan Council) is continuing its lobby campaign against the imposition of VAT on caravan holiday homes ‘in the interests of the industry, jobs and livelihoods that would be impacted by the proposal’.
A cross-party group of MPs came close to defeating the Government last night over the ‘Caravan Tax’. Their passionate opposition to the proposed introduction of 20% VAT on the sales of caravan holiday homes convinced the Government to extend the formal consultation period deadline.
